Radiant barrier, which typically consist of a highly reflective material; usually aluminum foil; which is applied to one or both sides of a number of substrate materials and air infiltration barrier material–usually in attics—is used primarily to reduce summer heat as well as to gain and reduce the cost of cooling down a home. The barrier consist of a highly reflective material that reflects radiant heat rather than absorbing it.
The installation of radiant barrier is a highly beneficial attribution. So much so in fact that, according to a 2010 study by the Building Envelope Research Program, homes with air-conditioning duct work in the attic in the hottest climate zones, such as in the US Deep South, could easily benefit the most from radiant barrier interventions, with annual utility bill savings of up to $150.
